App Store Top Ten: Week of December 13, 2010

Last week a number of big-name games hit the App Store, including Dungeon Hunter 2, Dead Rising Mobile, Puzzle Quest 2, and Eternal Legacy, but the only one that cracks the top selling list this week is Infinity Blade. It’s exceedingly tough for a game to make the list if it costs more than $2.99, so that speaks to the high profile and overwhelmingly positive critical reception of Epic’s $5.99 sword-fighting game. Check out what other games sold like hotcakes below.

#1: Angry Birds

Our Score: 4/4

Our Bottom Line: Destructive physics help make this a very charming puzzler, and the great level variety seals the deal.

#7: Pictureka!

Our Score: 3/4

Our Bottom Line: Pictureka is surprisingly hard and fast-paced for a game that’s all about finding objects on a board, but it’s not in the same league as Scrabble.

#10: Bejeweled 2 + Blitz

Our Score: 3/4

Our Bottom Line: Bejeweled 2 is a classic Match-3 game that has proved just as addictive as its original version, though it does not have enough creativity for our top recommendation.
